Here's How Audio Editing Has Changed From Analog To Digital Eras

The process of audio editing is infinitely more powerful since the advent of the digital era. Joe Albano compares how it used to be with how it is now, and showcases what you can achieve with your DAW  

Editing digital audio is a process that every producer need to understand. Whether you're topping and tailing a performance by a singer songwriter or forensically editing the spectral view of a waveform to remove background noise, it's something we all come across again and again. In this short video from the course Audio Concepts 201: Advanced Audio Editing, expert producer Joe Albano gets to the heart of working specifically with digital audio when editing.

Joe starts by looking at how audio editing used to be done, by cutting physical tape. He then moves on to talk about how editing in the digital domain is so much faster and more efficient, as well as non-destructive. Edits you made used to be permanent but now, not so much! You'll get a taste of what is possible with digital tools, and then by checking out the other videos in this course you will see in detail exactly how they work and what you can achieve.

Audio Concepts 201: Advanced Audio Editing

We are happy to welcome back the always informative and entertaining trainer Joe Albano for another installment in the Audio Concepts series. In this course, Joe starts off explaining a bit of the history of audio editing. This is important because much of the terminology and techniques are derived from their analog predecessors. But once that’s all covered, things turn digital in a giga-hurry!

Joe tosses out that rusty old razor blade and editing block and zooms right into the present with advanced digital techniques that you need to know to “advance” your audio education. And it doesn’t matter what DAW you prefer, as this course is applicable to all audio software applications.

You learn Beat Mapping, Time and Pitch transformations, Time-Shifting techniques and Pitch Editing. From there Joe explores the dark art of Sound Replacement before finishing up with some really amazing tutorials on Audio Repair and Forensics.

So join Joe Albano in this Advance Audio Editing course and learn from his vast professional experience. There is absolutely no better audio education on the planet than the one you’ll get right here... and in every course in our Audio Concepts series!
